Greetings

Self help books by the hundreds line the shelves of libraries and bookstores throughout the land. They  promise wealth, wisdom, understanding and prosperity.

I should know – I think I have read them all.   Some were helpful, some not so helpful.

But, I have found only one author delivers on these promises.

The Wisdom of Solomon is contained in the writings of Solomon in Proverbs and other ancient writings.  Proverbs promises wisdom.  Wisdom produces other benefits. Solomon’s wisdom was received directly from God.  The Bible tells us that “God gave Solomon wisdom and very great insight, and a breadth of understanding as measureless as the sand on the seashore.”

How do we receive wisdom?  What are the benefits of wisdom? Is it available to anyone? Solomon left us a path to follow.  It is found in the Book of Proverbs and to some extent the Book of Ecclesiastes.  Here are some of the promises contained.

  1. Wisdom
  2. Discipline
  3. Prosperity
  4. Wealth
  5. Victory
  6. Long life
Who is wisdom available to?  Anyone!  Wisdom “calls aloud in the street, raises her voice in the public square”.  In other words for those seeking wisdom they will find it.
The word “path” is found throughout Proverbs and the key to discovering wisdom is traveling along that path.  When I reached a point in my life where none of my paths seemed to lead anywhere I felt I had nothing left to lose – I turned myself over to One who promised to “direct my paths.”

    • Piers, you don’t know how good your comment made me feel. I feel like I’m stumbling in the dark at this. The only pointer would be use WordPress. If I can use it anyone can! – Don
